Cristiano Ronaldo dreams of World Cup

Cristiano Ronaldo said winning the World Cup would top everything achieved in his career so far after being named a knight of the Portuguese realm.

Ronaldo last week won the FIFA Ballon d’Or award, while over his club career with Manchester United and Real Madrid he has picked up Champions League, Premier League, La Liga, FA Cup, Copa del Rey and World Club Cup medals.

Speaking after receiving the Grand Officer of the Order of Prince Henry award in Lisbon, the 28-year-old said that lifting the World Cup trophy in the summer would be the biggest of all.

“It would be a dream come true,” Ronaldo said in comments published on Madrid’s official website. “I do not want to downplay the titles I have won up until now, like this honour or the Ballon d’Or, but it would be a dream come true. We know that it is very hard and that we have to keep our feet on the ground. We will try to do our best and take it one step at a time.”

Ronaldo received this latest honour -- the Portuguese republic’s equivalent of a knighthood -- from Portugal’s president, Anibal Cavaco Silva, on Monday afternoon at a ceremony held at Lisbon’s Belem National Palace.

The event was attended by a select group of invitees, including Madrid president Florentino Perez, Portuguese super-agent Jorge Mendes, Spain’s Ambassador to Portugal Eduardo Junco, Portugal FA chief Fernando Gomes and Sporting Lisbon president Bruno de Carvalho.

“I am very proud to receive this title from the president of the republic,” Ronaldo said. “I will carry on working as hard as possible to carry on representing Portugal abroad. This is an important honour for me because I am Portuguese and representing Portugal abroad is a privilege and a source of pride.”

Ronaldo said he would continue working hard to win more trophies and further cement his place in football history.

“This motivates me even more,” he said. “I will carry on working hard to win more trophies in my career. I am young and I will carry on playing to enjoy myself like I have up until now. Obviously, if I win titles and I manage to make a good entry in the history books in the world of football, all the better.”
